Merry Christmas!

I've been down with a cold for two days, plus am gearing up to turn in Whispers from the Shadows tomorrow--which means one last go-through. Yay!

And, of course, we've been hip-deep in Christmas prep around here. Including gingerbread cookies and ballerina pickles. ;-)

After tomorrow, Christmas break officially starts over here. Which means I'm going to take a much-needed break too, and will be taking next week off blogging. Hopefully coming back with a plate clear of some of my piled-up tasks and just bursting with inspiration.

Christmas plans in my world are pretty typical. I still need to do all my wrapping (yikes!), but the festivities will begin this weekend. A party at my fabulous sister's, a candlelight service on Christmas Eve, where the kids will be singing "Go, Tell It on the Mountain" in their adorable little-kid voices. So cute! My niece has an absolutely amazing voice and will be wowing us with two selections, and I'll be (throat willing) breaking out one of my absolute favorites, "Mary, Did You Know?" I've been practicing that one, and Rowyn has declared it one of his favorites and likes to sing it with me. Can I just tell you how sweet it is to hear a 4-year-old voice singing that song? Awwww.
How about everyone else? Big, fun Christmas plans?

  1. So precious - also love Mary, Did You Know - and little kid voices.
    Our church did its Christmas program last Sunday. We're going to the hubby's side for Christmas eve then back home for Christmas day. Looking forward to it :) Praying about your cold and your voice. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
